So, I got to put my 10 Cyanurus juvies into their new tank last night. They weren't at all shy about exploring it top to bottom :) They are incredibly entertaining. I never watched much t.v. anyway, but I think my television can be replaced entirely now ;) I would have gotten better photos but the camera battery crapped out! I'll try again once it is charged up!

Hello jerremie,
I read your other topic, and I think the temperature you have is no problem! My so subjected to temperatures a little lower and are well, we do take into account that they are adults! The depth of water, and think a little exaggerated given that no more than juveniles, but if you put lots of plants and other escapes not see any problem! Excellent your animals! I love this species! Good luck! ;)

Thanks Joost and Lusi :) By the way Lusi, I see you are from Portugal. I love the sound of the Portuguese language but I don't know how to speak it. Hablo el espanol, parlo un po l'italiano, but NO PORTUGUESE :( Sorry, it is such a beautiful language (especially in song - I study opera and classical singing in my extra time.) So for now, I am happy that YOU speak english :)

Eu também adoro a lingua portuguesa, mas como escritor em potencial sou suspeito!:D
Step to translate: I also love the Portuguese language, but as a potential writer I suspect! ;)
I know this has nothing to do with the topic, but for anyone interested in learning today at dawn Portugal was shaken by an earthquake, a rarity here, but it was nothing more! :rolleyes:
Wait for news of these wonderful creatures,jerremie! ;)
cheers

Cute little guys. Looks like they are lovin their new home! I remember when mine were that little, now they are little tanks eating everything in sight.

It looks like the background is rock, is it real because it looks great.


Thanks for sharing!

I've got 'fake' rock-backgrounds also. They look natural and are easy to clean

Thanks verytone for the kind comments. Mitch, it is an artificial rock wall, I was tempted to make one of my own, but since the 55 gallon tank is only 12 inches from front to back I didn't want to give up too much of that space to my background. This is the Mesa Rockwall slimline from AquaTerra. IT cost about 75 dollars for the 55 gallon background size. It looks real from across the room, but standing at the tank I can certainly tell it isn't real, but it is made of foam and is a whole lot lighter than a 48 inch by 18 inch slab of stone. I used slate tiles on the bottom, (4 dollars) for easy clean-up.

Joost, I love your tanks, they look great. I'm glad to hear that the faux stone is easy to clean, I like to keep things as low maintenance as possible.

    @ChocoUniversa, Buy some ammonia and an eyedropper from Walmart and a water test kit for ammonia, nitrites, and nitrates. Figure out (through testing) how many drops it will take to get the ammonia level to the test's maximum measurement. Add that same number of drops every 24 hours. Eventually, the ammonia will start to go down as it's converted to nitrites. Keep adding ammonia. The nitrite levels will spike for a while and then they too will start to go down as they convert to nitrates. These you get rid of by doing water changes, which you should be doing anyway throughout the process. Once all of these are at low levels, your aquarium is ready. It takes about a month, maybe two (mine took a month and a half). Be sure to add ammonia until the day of or the day before you add your axolotl.

    Hey guys, this is my first time using this so bear with me. I have an adult axie who looks like he’s developed some fungus on gills. It’s still really small and only on one part. I put him in a 10 gal quarantine tank with an Indian almond leaf. I want to give him a black tea bath but not sure if I can add my black tea to the tank with the Indian almond leaf in there. Any advice?

    @BChen3695, what are your parameters and temp? The fact that they're raised bumps could indicate fungus or bacterial infection.

    @XxJennXx, I don't believe so. They are closely related to tigers and my tiger doesn't brumate. I think first year they might but after they see they aren't needing to, they should be good. They might try and hibernate to, mine did for the first year but now I see him crawling around right now.

    @Pookisoo, The refrigerator is a good hospital for tigers.Temperature between 7 and 2 degrees Celsius can stop bacteria. If necessary or if you dare 0 to -2 can also help.Reduce the temperature in a few days from 7 degrees to 2. After that you can reduce further. Feel free to let it sit for a few weeks. Place the animal in a plastic container with a lid with some air holes. Fill it with some soil and / or leaves. Check regularly whether there is still moisture or ice in this container. At temperatures above 2 degrees, they do not go into hibernation. They will then live on their reserves. Doing nothing is not an option, I speak from experience. You can avoid these kinds of problems by keeping them fairly dry for much of the year.

    Hi guys! I’m new to this site and a new axolotl owner. I’ve had my baby (his name is toothpick) for about a month or so now. I finally got a water testing kit and I tested the perimeters earlier today. My ammonia was at 3 ppm and my nitrite was at 2 ppm. This freaked me out because I know they are supposed to be at 0 ppm. I did a water change a little bit ago and it went down to ammonia 1 ppm and in between 1-2 ppm nitrate. I change 50% of my water weekly and clean up any pieces of waste or excess food with a turkey bastwr everyday. Could this just be because the tank isn’t fully cycled yet? Should I be concerned? Toothpick hasn’t shown any signs of distress

    @Paige1warren You need to tub your axolotl and perform 100% daily water changes. Your tank is not fully cycled, and any readings of ammonia or nitrite are toxic and potentially deadly. A fully cycled tank should at all times have readings of 0ppm ammonia/0ppm nitrite/0pmm<nitrate.
